Fw: Meeting Jan. 12, 2017
What a beautiful morning here!
It was great to see all our guild friends at our gathering on Thursday. Completed projects were on display, and it seemed that just about everyone has a knitting project on the go, from socks to baby sweaters. Please note the cute dog ball cap that Wendy made – see the ear holes?
We decided that our postponed Potluck Luncheon will be held on Feb. 9, with a Valentine’s Day theme. Please bring your favourite dish, salad, casserole, or dessert, and we will eat around 11:30.
This coming THURSDAY, JAN. 19th, we will have a workday starting at 9:30 to see if we can finish up the blocks for the CQA project of making quilts for Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. I have seen some of the quilts online that have been completed by guilds and their members across the country. If you are a Facebook user, you may want to look for the page called “Quilting in Canada”, where many of these quilts are pictured. Please bring your machine and rotary cutters, extra bobbins, etc. If you wish, bring a sandwich for lunch. We will work till about 2 when the church usually has their Bible study group. We have about 15 blocks done so far. I would like to see a total of 36 blocks, enabling us to send a baby-sized top (12 blocks) and a larger child’s quilt top (24 blocks) to the CQA Big Quilt Bee.
